Tag Archive: back to school


We are not even through the month of July yet and many parents are already starting to think about back to school supplies.

In fact recently, I noticed that 75% of the supplies had been purchased at my local big box retailer.

Some schools begin the first week of August, while others don’t go back until after Labor Day.

The typical list for moms and dads consists of pens, pencils, erasers, glue, markers, maybe even a protractor.

But there’s one item that parents may want to consider this summer as they prepare to start a new school year.

After all, parents are gearing up their kids for all of those “A” grades right?

So back to school shopping needs to go beyond what goes in the back pack.

That includes shoes, and clothing, eyeglasses, and it means even getting much needed daily medications filled like inhalers for kids that suffer from asthma.

One item that is also a good back to school product for parents to consider is a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

Afterall, in addition to your children forgetting some basic math and history principles over the summer, they may also have experimented with drugs.

SAMHSA just released a study that revealed that June and July are the top two months where teens try drugs for the first time.

Year round, about 4,000 children try drugs for the first time every day. 2,500 of them are abusing pills.

Don’t send your child to school with a budding drug problem.

You send them in new clothes, new shoes, and with new supplies to start off a successful school year.

Why send them to school this 2012 with a hidden problem.

Detecting the experimentation could make the difference in that curiosity, becoming an addiction.

Start the school year right with Teensavers by your side.

When it comes to back to school shopping supplies, we know that long list of  items can pile up in the shopping cart.

Most TV segments, magazine lists, and internet compilations show the same thing. The new trendy backpack, the hip cool super-duper whiz-bang lunch bag, and the must have stationary items that the kids love like shaky pens and the newest mechanical pencils.

But there is one thing commonly overlooked when it comes to planning for the next school year; teen and preteen drug abuse.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is the one item to help protect your teens.

Why is it such a valuable weapon for parents?

More kids are admitting to using drugs by the age of 18 (37%), and more kids are admitting that they have a hard time saying no to drugs because of peer pressure (40%.)

And it’s not just pot.

These kids are using painkillers and transitioning to heroin, once they are addicted to opiates.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit isn’t just a drug test. It is a comprehensive kit that acts as an empowering agent for teens. They can tell their friends that they cannot do drugs because their parents test them.

Believe it or not, many parents do not talk to their kids about drugs. They also don’t know which drugs are in their community. Most importantly, many of them don’t even realize that they are their teen’s first drug dealer.

4,000 kids try drugs for the first time every day. 2,500 of them are using prescriptions. And they are getting them straight out of the family medicine cabinet at home, or at their grandparents homes.

And unlike other drug test kits, the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is the total solution. It comes with a parental guide that covers the emotional aspects of drug use including warning signs and how to discuss drugs with your teens. On top of that it includes a 24/7 free hot line for parents to ask their questions. From the moment you bring it home it starts working, and it helps parents understand the warning signs. I know my kids’ friends won’t be offering my children drugs, because they’ve seen the test at my home. They will be too afraid that I’d tell their parents or give their parents drug tests to use.

It really works well as a deterrent.

These tests are the latest generation of home drug tests and the tests most recently approved by the FDA for OTC sales.

Only one of four tests can make this claim. Our test is laboratory accurate and maintains a 99.9% accuracy rate. We are the #1 recommended brand by addiction specialists, and we were recently named a winning product by the Parent Tested, Parent Approved group.

How else is Teensavers Home Drug Test different from the other tests? Experience and passion. The creator is Steve Stahovich, a former teen addict. Luckily, he survived his addiction and continued on to run the largest treatment centers in the country, here in Southern California. He developed this product after repeatedly hearing the same question from parents of the children he was treating, “How could we have detected this before it became an addiction?”

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is sold in Rite Aid Pharmacies and is sold online at CVS.com, Walgreens.com, Amazon.com, and Drugstore.com. Click here for a direct link to your preferred retailer.
